Wheel bearings. They are probally going bad. Make sure the 32mm axle bolt is tight as well (the gold one you see when the little lug-nut cover is off. assuming you have 90+ Si wheels).

Could also be an impact break. Inspect your tires for a "bubble." That is an impact break and can cause the noise along with making the car pull to one side depending on bad it is.

jack up the car, when the wheels no longer touch make sure the parking brake is off and wiggle the wheels back/forth then up/down. if it has play in any wheel, then your bearing is dying.
